Hymn 8. C. M. |While shepherds watch'd their flocks by night.|

While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
All seated on the ground,
The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shone around.

2 |Fear not,| said he, (for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled mind,)
|Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind.

3 |To you in David's town this day
Is born, of David's line,
The Saviour, who is Christ the Lord;
And this shall be the sign:

4 |The heavenly babe you there shall find
To human view display'd,
All meanly wrapp'd in swathing bands,
And in a manger laid.|

5 Thus spake the seraph, and forthwith
Appear'd a shining throng
Of angels praising God, on high,
And thus addressed their song:

6 |All glory be to God on high,
And to the earth be peace;
Good will henceforth, from heaven to men,
Begin and never cease.|
